My wife and I just left an amazing 4 night stay at Gaia. We had booked the special Spa package that included an upgraded room (suite with private roof top), $100 food credit, and $500 spa credit. The spa was so reasonably priced ($150 for a 60min couples massage) that we struggled to use the whole credit (3 one hour couples massages plus a 30minute couples foot massage during only 4 days). I do not usually eat at hotel restaurants (prefer to get off property and explore local restaurants) but the restaurant was so good that we ate every dinner there (as well as all breakfasts and most lunches). The entire staff was amazingly friendly and most addressed us by name. The 3 owners (all USA residents) take turns looking after the hotel and at least one was present at all times greeting guests and going table to table in the restaurant). The sunset is magical (5:45pm every night year round we were told) and can be really enjoyed from the hotel restaurant with 2X1 Happy Hour cocktails and awesome very inexpensive tapas/small plates. The hotel is only 20 rooms and is very relaxing. Some people may prefer to stay at one of the many hotels directly on the ocean (Gaia is several miles away) but the Gaia property is very beautiful (with distant views of the ocean)
